Students should be able to sing the first part of this song up to the word "Seuss!" (between 20 and 43 seconds)

Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!

Oh the thinks you can think, Oh the thinks you can think
If  you're willing to try
Think invisible ink, or a gink with a stink, or a stair to the sky
If you open your mind, Oh the things you will find
Lining up to get loose,
Oh the thinks you can think when you think about SEUSS!

All students from Mr. Zeigler's and Ms. Black's classes were invited to take part in the Halloween Vocal Concert.  These students had been hard at work for several weeks preparing some "holiday favorites" and many were anxious to show off what they've learned.
